Caio Collet has been signed by the reigning and two-time Indy NXT champions at HMD Motorsports, which makes the Brazilian its 10th and final driver for its expansive NXT program.
The 21-year-old, who brings FIA Formula 3 and other junior open-wheel experience to IndyCar’s top training category, arrives at HMD with high expectations.
“It has been a long process to officially confirm Caio as an HMD Motorsports driver in 2024,” said team president Mike Maurini. “While he will also have the title of Reserve and Sim Driver for Nissan in Formula E, Caio’s main focus will be Indy NXT with us in 2024.”
After dedicating his racing education to European championships, Collet hopes the rerouting of his career to the U.S. will eventually lead to having another Brazilian driver in the big series.
“The NTT IndyCar Series is a goal of mine for the future but right now, I am 100% focused on Indy NXT with HMD Motorsports,” Collet said. “I have a lot to learn, and I am thankful for the opportunity. I will put my best foot forward at achieving race wins, podium results, and the championship for both HMD Motorsports and myself.”
